    THR New left hip

    @oh2sew, give the traditional PT a chance. Honestly, I felt as though I wasn't accomplishing much when I was going through my six weeks but looking back, it was a real help. I never felt like I was being challenged but that was exactly what I needed. The range of motion is such a slight but...

    THR New left hip

    Gotta jump in here again on two counts....first, your hip replacement surgery WAS a miracle...no doubt. When you consider your pre-op pain and the life you would have be forced to "settle for"...well, yes, it IS a miracle. Second, tell all those folks who want to tell you about different...

    THR New left hip

    Gym rats are the worst PT patients ever! Sorry....I'm married to one and I was ready for the funny farm after his shoulder surgery. My THR (left hip, posterior method) was July, 2014. I had an amazing recovery...ups and downs, but always could see progress....BUT....I did not get back on a...

    Me2, oh, gosh...I'm SO sorry about your dental problems and then your Mom's health issues to boot...what a mishmash of a holiday, eh? I was dealing with my hip aches when my Mom went into hospice and, honestly, it was just the worst of times. However, once I made peace with her aging and the...

    THR JB's (beachgal) Joyous Journey 7/25/14!

    Bonesmart, I'm back! It's been several months since I posted an update but not a day has passed that I didn't think of the many hours I spent scouring this forum and reading words of encouragement. It's a new year, my hip is still rocking along, and we're getting ready for a busy tax season...

    Happy Anniversary to me! Two years ago, I took my first steps with a new hip. Little did I know nor could I have guessed how it would change my life. No words can express what a leap of faith it was but totally worth it. Don't wait. No more excuses. Do it! Sent from my iPhone using...

    THR JB's (beachgal) Joyous Journey 7/25/14!

    @Me2, hubby went fishing today with his brothers at seven months from his shoulder surgery. He said he didn't even think about it. It was his left shoulder and he's right-handed but they had a great day so he's pretty happy. I don't know much about shoulder surgery other than watching him go...

    THR JB's (beachgal) Joyous Journey 7/25/14!

    It's been almost three months since I dropped by Bonesmart, I'm ashamed to say. We finished up tax season at a fever pitch and I've been traveling to our Clinton home every few weeks, working on a new project there. Still thankful every moment for my amazing hip and the freedom it has given me...

    I'm baacckkkk....and it's been a rough few weeks since I posted last. My friend who fractured her femur on Feb. 10th just came home from the rehab facility last week. She is still not where she needs to be this far out from her surgery (per her OS) but I keep assuring her that it's HER...

    THR JB's (beachgal) Joyous Journey 7/25/14!

    Lord. Over a month since I've posted but what a month! Friend's hip recovery has been miserable. Nonexistent. She is finally starting to walk from bed to bathroom in rehab facility. Her surgery was 2/10 but no replacement, just repair. She's 79. Just not going well. All trips canceled. Very...

    You'll never believe this one....our beloved friend and dog sitter fell yesterday and broke her hip. She's just come out of surgery and I'm spending the night in the hospital with her tonight.

    How to decide it's time for a THR?

    When I realized how much of my normal activities I had given up because of the pain, it was easy to say "yes". So glad I did. Wish I had done it sooner. Sent from my iPhone using BoneSmart Forum

    Dentist visits with antibiotics for LIFE post-op?

    Different schools of thought on this. My dentist has me pre-medicate with 4 500 mg amoxicillin before my visits whether for cleaning or other stuff. About a year after my THR, I had an abscess that required some attention and I pre-medicated prior. Now. I'm a bit over 18 months from THR and...

    It's been a few days since I've had time to check in. Our new tax software is stretching us, mentally, but we're up for the challenge. I had forgotten how difficult learning a new "system" could be! Seems we are sorting it out daily but no real issues yet! My hip and hubby's shoulder seem to...
